1- IF possible, allow signal strength display option of dbuV/m and dbuV.
2 - If hardware design permits, allow USB to stream FM audio to the pc, and appear as a windows input device.  This saves having to hook up a separate audio cable, and saves having to use a soundcard line input (some of which are not available on a laptop or are of low quality).
Great work!  Cheers.

Suggestion 3 - Toggle option to instantly audio mute P175 output when the RF signal level drops below preset level, with visual indicator on screen and in FM Scope/Guard of mute status.

1 - The dBuV describes the signal on input connector while the dBuV/m describes the signal in environment. This results in a need of calibrated converter between the environment and the equipment - special calibrated antenna and exact method of use. Otherwise the dBuV/m value has no real sense. Due to additional influences it is usually required that the antenna and the measuring equipment forms one device where all components are fitted together. Due to this the P175 or any similar device can't provide dBuV/m measurements.
2 - This is still open, a solution is being searched.
3 - Will be implemented.
